Gorgonzola Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto
(yields 24 pieces)
What You’ll Need:
24 pitted dates, sliced down the middle (found on sale for $2.99/lb)
24 small pieces of gorgonzola (about 3/4 cup)
8 pieces of prosciutto, sliced
Preheat oven to 425F.
Insert one piece of cheese into each pre-sliced date. You may have to just squish the cheese in, especially if it’s crumbly.
Sprinkle prosciutto with paprika and slice each piece of prosciutto into 3 pieces.
Wrap each date with a slice of prosciutto, with paprika side toward the date. Insert a toothpick into the date to secure it.
Bake 8-10 minutes, or until prosciutto is sizzling. Enjoy immediately…at room temperature they got a little dry.
TOTAL: $6.50 or $.27 per serving.
